That is, 188.8.131.52 (hub01.mail.iol.ie) is refusing to deliver mail
received from 184.108.40.206 (mail07.svc.cra.dublin.eircom.net) because
of a Spamcop report about it. Eircom are guilty of the following
* Been reported as a source of spam less than 10 times
* Been detected sending mail to spam traps
* Been witnessed sending mail about 5290 times
Knowing that this server belongs to a widely-used ISP (with it's fair
share of virus-riddled and otherwise clueless users), none of these
things is particularly surprising.
